Alyssa Milano’s made no secret of her abortion advocacy, but there’s something especially disturbing about how she’s chosen to frame her personal abortion experience:
Alyssa Milano: If I hadn't opted for two abortions in 1993 'my life would be completely lacking all its great joys' today https://t.co/Ud6avOfBka
— TheBlaze (@theblaze) August 20, 2019
More from the Blaze:
“I would not have my children — my beautiful, perfect, loving, kind [and] inquisitive children — who have a mother who was so very, very ready for them,” she said of her son and daughter, born in 2011 and 2014, respectively, with second husband David Bugliari, Yahoo Entertainment said.
Milano added that had she not had her abortions she wouldn’t have married Bugliari nor would she have had her present career nor the platform she’s built to “fight against oppression,” the outlet reported.
“Fifteen years after that first love had fizzled, my life would be completely lacking all its great joys,” she noted, according to Yahoo Entertainment. “I would never had been free to be myself — and that’s what this fight is all about: freedom.”
We can understand her gratitude for the children she has, but to suggest that the children she aborted would have sucked the joy out of her life and prevented her from realizing her full potential — which apparently revolves around liberal advocacy — is really twisted.
How would she know that exactly? Does she have a crystal ball or something?

Lady you wouldn’t know joy if it slapped you in the face. https://t.co/pKkWzbbEFf

At the most basic level, this bizarre justification lacks quantitative merit. How does one even measure the potential lack of life’s “great joys.”

Personal responsibility and accountability are willfully neglected components of self-ownership, when it comes to abortion.

Milano claims she was on the birth control both times she got pregnant and that she ultimately had no choice but to have those two abortions because she “was not ready to be a parent” and because she was taking Accutane, which is known to cause severe birth defects (it can also have serious affects on the user’s mental health). Any doctor worth a damn would have told her not to roll the dice and rely only on the pill to prevent pregnancy (assuming Milano was even taking it correctly) when the risks to an unborn baby were so high. Alyssa citing Accutane as an excuse for her abortions makes it clear she knew enough to know that she was playing with fire. Guess she figured she could just erase any mistakes that arose from her recklessness.
That is really an unbelievable and shameful statement. Basically "I killed two babies when I was a lot younger and my life is amazing for it."

Imagine telling your children:
"I'm so happy you came at an opportune time for me cause if not I wouldn't have loved you"

So, children are a burden that suck the joy out of life? One can wonder what the children that she didn’t murder in the womb think about this revelation. That their brother or sister were just an inconvenience and an impediment to happiness to be lanced like a boil.

So sad that she imagines these children would have ruined her life. There are women throughout this world that have had unplanned children and the joy from them is not lacking. In fact, their children are the sparkle in their lives, and they are so grateful they chose life. https://t.co/tgny9yRrKD

the pro-abortion left has spent decades pitting moms against their babies with dehumanizing rhetoric all in order to push abortion as procedure of convenience and it's so sad and infuriating.

What a completely horrible, selfish, evil thing to say.

Pray for her, people. I know she is an easy target, but she needs God to touch her heart.
